Sony Chat / Re: Sony PlayStation 1 - Must Have Games
« on: March 20, 2018, 05:15:53 AM »
PS1 had loads of great RPGs, that was one of the main reasons I got one.

What about Parasite Eve.

Time Pilot ;D One of my all time favorites in the arcades.

I would like to see Racing Destruction Set redone. That track editor was pur fun, spent hundreds of hours with that game.

Sony Chat / Re: Playstation Games That Disappointed You?
« on: March 19, 2018, 08:33:48 AM »
I was testing now for some month PS1, PS2 and PS3 games, on my PS3.

So I tested around 300 titles for each of the three. And while doing that, I started to notice, what I never thought, because I never took it in consideration, that the quality of the games went up a lot with every console.

I tested all the top games, sports games, and also was looking out for the worst of the worst for every console, and tested them.

The fact is, after playing 300 titles for the PS1, I thought OMG, was there this much scrap for it!! Honestly, there are bad games for the PS1, a whole bunch of them, never thought it, as I got my PS1 very late, it was also my first console, as I only used computers before that (not counting my Philips Videopac G7000). And there are some turds that are abslutely must play, so bad they are.

When I was then testing PS2 games, I noticed straight away that the quality of the games was increasing, and I don't now mean the obvious, the graphics, no, but the games themselves. The ratio of bad/good games almost was fifty-fifty.

Where it became even more obvious, was when I was then testing PS3 games, again the quality increased, less games released but better quality in general, and of course the usual turds, like for example Prison Break, which I tested, thought it was not too bad, good but all the time same stealth missions, and I played it through in 2 days :D

I think, in my opinion, the quality of games is increasing all the time, seing late game releases, on the last gen consoles, some absolutely awesome productions, sadly not that much space for turds, but luckily we have some indie companies which still from time to time feed us with unnecessary stuff.

Had great fun during these 3-4 months, less because I had back surgery, 8 screws and 2 carbon bars installed in the lower back, but at least I was off work, and I had the possibility to enjoy my favorite pass time, gaming.

But sorry, I completely missed the topic, which is clearly not about bad games, but about disappointing ones, which is another story. I have to go now, but will come back to this topic and try to answer the actual topic ;D

Always wanted to review Bruce Lee, one of my all time favorites and Paradroid. Also gonna do one about Projectyle, don’t know if a lot of people know it, but I think it’s an awesome game which I still play from time to time nowadays.

Btw, where should I post reviews? In the forum or do I have access to the review section? Also, can I post pictures with it?

True, space is always a big issue.

I recently (2 years ago) sold basically almost all of my stuff, had around 50-60 computers and consoles stacked on shelves collecting dust. I only kept, for the moment, from PS2 upwards, but also still have 1 or 2 PS1 respectively PSOne and a Dreamcast. I still have pictures from before the sale, I can post them here.

Btw, what’s a good FREE image hosting site? I always used Photobucket, but it’s payable now since some months, and I’m definitely not paying for it.

I might also write some reviews, probably mainly for C64, as I know and like quite a lot of games. I’m no journalist though, and I’m even not English, so might not be the best ;-) but I can give it a try.

I was only joking fella..

No way I'd expect you to do that.
I know mate ;D was kidding too.

Just ordered the first issue of Freeze 64. Wanted to get them all, but decided to get one mag first to check it out, I’m collecting way too much.

I own every issue of Retro Gamer, 1-178 at the moment, I think 178 is the latest.

I also have the German RETRO magazine, and a real great one which is called Return (https://www.return-magazin.de). Don’t have time to read them though :D But is not everything about collecting :D

Looks awesome, thanks for the info, although you could have posted this earlier ;D

The C64 is still my favorite computer of all time, growing up wit it, got one in 1984 and fell in love straight away. After that of course it was the big brother Amiga!

I only know about the magazine Lotek64, which has already 56 issues, but only in pdf format, but for free, you can download them all at http://lotek64.com/hp/index.php, only problem (not for me though) is that it's german only.

Looks nice indeed, but I already own some JXD devices, based on Android, which all can run Vice very well. I have the 7300, which has a 7 inch screen, really nice with Vice.

Commodore Chat / Re: Underappreciated C64 games.

I loved Allekat, as I loved many of Andrew Braybrook’s games, like the Uridium series and especially Paradroid, still one of my all time favorites.

Law of the West was one of the first games I had on the C64, and I loved it. It’s quite short, but it has great replayability due to the multiple choices you have. Probably one of the first games that used multiple choices. The graphics were just awesome for that time too. Loading times were a chore though.

Have to fully agree with Wasted Years and Perihelion, although not playing them from disks, as the swapping might get frustrating.

One of my favorite "sports" games is still Projectyle, where you hover around on some kind of discs, you have a playfield consisting of 5 different rooms, which makes the gameplay quite interesting. It's top down view. Guess some guys from Psyonix were playing this one before creating SARPBC or Rocket League ;)

Talking about underappreciated or hidden gem, Benefactor comes to my mind, liked it straight away when I played it first, great puzzle platformer with nice graphics.
